Fascinating novel about art,
This review is from: Headlong (Paperback)
The discussion about art, and in particular the relation between art, religion and politics, is educational almost beyond the point of fiction. It didn't fit with a story that is very entertaining but essentially silly. I don't know why he didn't make a more serious novel out of it - maybe because this is Michael Frayn, author of light novels about serious subjects. Despite that slight frustration, the art was so brilliantly researched and explained, this is one of my very favourite novels.
